Laotian arrested with dog carcasses

Marine Border Police patrolling on the Mekong River arrested a Laotian woman and seized two sacks of dog carcasses in Nong Khai's Sangkhom district early yesterday morning.

Following a tip-off that a local man, Phut Meenadee, 65, had been spotted delivering sacks of dog carcasses to the Laotian accomplice at the Ban Pak Som pier to transport them via long-tailed boat to Laos, police arrested the Laotian, Dao Siliwai, 40, at Phut’s home. They also seized two dog carcasses in sacks. 
Dao told police she had merely accompanied her Thai husband to sell the carcasses to Phut, but police showed up and he fled. 
Police found that Phut allegedly bought dog carcasses at Bt60 per kilogram to be resold to a Laotian man identified only as Pon at Bt200-Bt300 per kilogramme, and that Phut was once arrested while delivering dog carcasses to a customer along the Mekong River last year. 
In a separate case, six men – including a Laotian national – and two women were arrested yesterday as they allegedly smuggled 12,000 kilograms of buffalo tongues worth Bt5 million into Thailand via Mukdahan. 
The arrests stemmed from a tip-off about some 10 gangsters on four long-tailed boats transporting suspicious items in boxes to a warehouse in Tambon Nai Muang yesterday morning.
